I understand the difficulties of learning English, especially when coming from a completely different language such as Mandarin Chinese or Cantonese. As I learn more about the Chinese language, I've learned how to break the communication and cultural barriers.

I'd love to help improve English speaking, writing, communication, and overall understanding of the English language, specifically tailored for native Chinese speakers.

I've been taking lessons with Mohammed since January 2019. With zero proficiency in Arabic, he led to master all the arabic sounds and letters. We've since been learning Lebanese/Palestinian arabic. His classes are so fun and he knows a lot about teaching,

Hi students! I have over 14 years of experience in teaching English. I specialize in beginner/intermediate level English with a focus on pronunciation and conversational English. My lessons are creative, fun, and focus on YOU the student. I am interested in learning about your interests, assess your English needs, and make the learning experience enjoyable. When students are comfortable, they learn better. I use a lot of visuals, examples, and clear pronunciation when explaining things in English. I also love to smile and make my students laugh.
